Forbes has their grad program ranked between Oxford Said and LBS. Pretty speculative, and I won't claim to be an expert on it, but, that seems like it might be similar to like a Tuck/Furqa on the grad level.

Undergrad - one of my good buddies from HS went there. 3.9+ GPA finance/econ double. President of 2 major clubs. Very connected, old money, smooth operator kind of guy (he would have been at Princeton if it weren't for a stupid thing he did his senior year of HS where he lost his offer). He struggled more than I did with a 3.6GPA at a US semi-target with 2 clubs and a sport (accomplished, but no leadership positions). Ended up ER at a MM due to a huge connection. Recruiting for him was pretty bad. From what he told me, most of the people who do well in finance coming out of McGill rely on connections more than OCR.

Actually I was refering to their bcom.. My bad. Would you place it with Notre Dame, Boston U in the US?

I read that alot of BBs do OCR in McGill.. Overall would you say McGill is worth it for a person who has to pay international tuition fee?

I would say it would probably fall somewhere in the BU/ND range - probably closer to ND (which is a good thing). It is not a bad school, but whether or not it is worth it really depends on your other options. What else are you looking at?

You will get looks from BBs/EBs in both Toronto and NYC coming out of McGill. Recruiting will be much easier if you make it into the Honours in Investment Management program. I think PirateBanker1's friend is an exceptional case, most people with resumes like that will place in top BBs/EBs coming out of McGill.

Rankings like the above are one way to look at it but would not think much of it. Top students will always find opportunities and the prestige differentials among the schools you mentioned should not be your deciding factor as they are in the same range. Think about $$, culture, location, etc.

What about Kelley School of Business?
I got into Kelley School of Business, Rotterdam School of Management and Desautels Faculty of Management.

How would you ranking these 3 for high finance/IB? Which university will open more doors for me?

McGill places well in NYC if you are a top student. I cant speak for the other schools.
